Amazon Instant Video App Review
In this review
Quick Verdict -
Amazon Prime members have been waiting for an app to let them stream video from Amazon's servers onto their shiny ipad tablet, as the lack of an app was stopping a lot of potential customers sign up.
Firstly you have to wonder why there is no app for the other Apple products such as iphone and ipod? Even worse if you have an Apple TV device, there is no AirPlay support, which sucks big time.
No purchasing in the app
If you want to buy a movie, Amazon send you back to their website just so Apple dont get a cut of the profits as well. The choice of titles from within the app also seems smaller than from the Amazon website?
Subscription free and pay-to-view in one app
The Amazon instant video app offers users a selection of TV-On-Demand and movies for rental or purchase. Prime members also get a selection of titles that can be streamed instantly, and for free.
Standard Definition and HD options
Watching content on Amazon offers movies in SD and HD, and choosing SD is cheaper and streams better, so a no-brainer. Rentals range from 99 cents to $3.99, and purchasing movies range from $9.99-$14.99. However there are quite a few bargains that are cheaper to buy.
Take your watchlist to iPad
When running the app, just use your Amazon details to log-in which will show any content in your library or watchlist ready to stream.
The slick interface shows featured shows in a number of different categories. Movies start playing instantly without any buffering (this can change if your on a slow connection), the picture looks good and streaming is fast.Your watched content shows related items that are available either free with your subscription or available to buy. There is seamless linking from watching subscription content to being able to buy some on-demand content. You can also easily access your Watchlist / queue, and get access to any season pass shows.
Amazon are seriously attacking the Netflix service, giving as good or better range of content at around the same cost. In use the app runs very well, and you get to seamlessly choose premium content if wanted from within the app. The downside is having to leave the app to purchase content. The lack of an app on any other device than Apple's ipad seems a strange omission. But this is pretty much your only real alternative to Netflix.
